Default Overheating Programs

These programs were reccomended to me but I want to know if they would screw up my pc.

http://mbm.livewiredev.com/
http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
http://www.passmark.com/download/index.htm

I want to install these because one day my computer shut down randomly. I want to use these programs because some of them can test my pc. I just don't want to screw up my computer, because this stuff is pretty technical

It's ok also. If you ever seen yout system crash while using it, its becaseu there is some kind of hardware failure like overclocking etc.

Speedfan is nice. Post the temps you are getting here, and your system specs.

http://mbm.livewiredev.com/ wanted me to install a system driver for my motherboard since I didn't have the right one. Will this mess my computer up? When I cancelled the install, it deposted a .nfo file on the desktop and I had to get rid of it by deleting the install program into the recycle bin

I already had to reinstall my motherboard nvidia driver last time i accidentally uninstalled it. It was a real pain. I even lost internet

http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2005-...9/SpeedFan.jpg are these values good? Is my computer healty? when I started up, it said I had a bunch of bugs/errors and asked me to go to advanced options. I didn't mess around with the controls, because I don't want to mess up the system

My PC isn't backed up, so I"m not doing burn in test.

Your temps are fine. You can install the chipset drivers if you want to, it's recommended, but don't do it if yo are sure they will mess things up.
